Birds of Prey at West Hill!
We were very lucky today to have Alan from Eagle Heights visit our school today to teach our children about birds of prey. We met Sybil the Harris Hawk, Sparky the Barn Owl and Buster the Bald Eagle amongst others. Sybil and Buster even flew over us! They are incredibly impressive animals and we were incredibly privileged to welcome them to West Hill. We are very grateful for Alan at Eagle Heights for coming in today free of charge.
Ofsted Inspection Result- West Hill remains Good
Please find below the published letter from Ofsted following our inspection in December.
We were very pleased with the comments that the inspector gave, for example ‘Leaders work hard to make sure that all pupils have a wide range of experiences so that they develop as confident, well-informed and responsible members of society.’
